This web-based calculator estimates heats of reaction associated with thermal runway of layered metal oxide cathode materials based on the underlying thermodynamics for specific metal compositions, degrees of delithiation, and coexisting organic material (e.g. electrolyte solvent).
The web-based calculator is intended to provide a better experience for most users, while the spreadsheet-based calculator is suitable for customization by advanced users.
